WITHOUT a host of their most experienced players, Cronulla have easily overcome a combined Central Coast team in their first trial for 2004. Star players David Peachey, Jason Stevens, Nigel Vagana and Phil Bailey all watched from the sidelines as their less experienced team mates routed their opponents with the final scoreline favouring the Sharks 60-12.
WHEN Chris Anderson signed with Cronulla, he stated publicly that he wanted to stay with the club for ten years. Cronulla needed a new culture, a winning culture, and Anderson was the man to provide. Only two years later he has found himself jobless, without a club to coach after having been unceremoniously dumped by the club he promised to deliver a premiership to in three years.
FORMER Cronulla coach Chris Anderson is seeking $1.3 million for unlawful dismissal from the Sharks after being dismissed late last year. Anderson had one year remaining on his contract with an option for a further two seasons if the club reached the finals.
THE Cronulla Sharks will officially launch their 2004 season this Sunday at Waratah Park, Sutherland. All supporters are invited to attend to mix with the players, grab a few signatures or register to play league with one of the local clubs.
IT'S traditionally a dangerous practice to base predictions on form from the World Sevens. While fundamentally remaining the same game, the rule changes effectively ensure that individual performances are more important than teamwork and in depth strategizing.
